The influence of the molecular architecture and the composition of block copolymers on their solid-liquid interface behaviour were investigated in detail. For this purpose, the surface modification of hydrophilic titanium dioxide and hydrophobic copper phthalocyanine pigments in aqueous dispersion by a series of amphiphilic block copolymers has been studied.
Polymerization of hydrophobic vinyl monomers in polyvinylpyrrolidone aqueous solutions has been investigated under ultrasonic treatment. The effect of ultrasound on the destruction of water-soluble polymeric matrices has been examined. The obtaining mechanism of block- and grafted copolymers of vinyl monomers with polyvinylpyrrolidone has been proposed. The copolymers have been synthesized as films and their main properties, physico-mechanical and sorption-diffusive, in particular, have been investigated.
